The variety in the menu is great, something for everyone or get a few to share. The building and decor are really nice.

We had a reservation but waited 20 minutes for out outdoor table. I requested an ocean view but that was not an option. Dinner was great, the best part was our overly kind and wonderful server. GREAT SERVICE!
